of defenses and arguments you see in the federalists today? who writes them? who sits at home and drafts arguments we see, letters, you see -- you never [inaudible] these were people who were engaged and knew the constitution and these were not scholars. these were not people who had appropriated to themselves license, the soul license to interpret or talk about the great document. these were foreigners. these were business people. some of them who have formal education, some who did not. they cared about the country. i think you need to have that today. i think that, you know, i go back to your book, you talk about the written and unwritten constitution. the unwritten constitution is that sort of trying to bring to apply it to current events and problems and cases, and developments and the debate continues on each one of those. and that's why you see the court go different ways. that's why the arguments -- [inaudible] that's why the scholarship is so important. one thing i like about the tone of the book. it's so positive. it's refreshing. you know, it's not i have all the answers. here

early last week. they stopped the defense sequester and that's all they did because it won't go anywhere after that. the $500 billion in defense cuts are still set to take place. all the other spending cuts are set to take place and it's, of course, in deal-making this is called the ckabuki theater and people are depending on them to get it right by the deadline. there's no argument being made that it's good to go over the fiscal cliff. >> please, make the argument, dean. >> one argument is that there are will be a lot of people in washington that pretend to be ve very knowledgeable. but seriously, if nothing happens on january 1st, i'll be subject to a higher rate of withholding. if they do a deal on january 5th as opposed to december 28th, the difference to 99.9% of the population is basically zilch and we get to see a lot of people with egg on their face. >> why. >> because they've been running around like the myian calendar, the end of the world and it's nonsense. the reality is on the spending side, president obama will keep spending in accordance with what he thinks the deals look
of the questions. in my defense -- [laughter] i would just like to say, whatever, okay? it was basic cable, all rights? you don't pay extra for cnn. [laughter] it is a somewhat more informed decision and that i thought the low would be overturned based on the oral arguments in part because of my experience, this is not a corporately plate a lot of devils advocate. they use oral argument, their questions to make their case to their colleagues. and during most of the argument that the five conservatives are very much leaning against the obama administration on the key arguments in the case, was just as the commerce clause of article i although congress to pass the individual mandate, which says the individuals have good health insurance. as i sat in court on june 28th in her chief justice roberts announce a decision in the case, i learned the answer to that question, which was no, it doesn't. the commerce clause does not allow the court, the congress to invoke an individual mandate. but then in a decision that stunned many people, but no one more than me, john roberts reached for a subsidiary arg

and purposes the nominee for the defense secretary? >> the administration has done everything they can. chuck hagel is like a man, who was like susan rice, not nominated for anything. susan rice took a pelting for a job she was not officially nominated for. chuck hagel is someone who hasn't been nominated for secretary of defense but is someone who is rumored to be that person. i think we saw an indication of what the administration was doing to, in a way to protect hagel, and i'm thinking of specifically the criticisms of hagel and what he had said during the whole "don't ask, don't tell" fight and things that -- i'm sorry, about the nomination of jim hormel to be ambassador to luxembourg back in the '90s. he said the ambassador was openly aggressively homosexual. hagel took a pummelling for a few hours, few days, then miraculously, there was an apology from chuck hagel. there were phone calls from the white house to gay groups. >> seems to me it shows you the toughest place to be in washington right now is a moderate independent, especially if you're moving forward into the public light. bo
defense spending and blame it on the republicans. the problem is we have had harry reid and the senate democrats haven't passed a budget plan in three years and they're looking at just raising taxes. we need to seriously address the spending in this country and we haven't had that from the democrats. we have to have that for things to pass. really get this deficit under control. >> all right. so keith, that was a loud sigh that you just gave. >> you heard that? >> i think everybody at home just heard that. so you obviously do not agree with alice's assessment there. i want to show debbie wasserman-schultz's quote. no 48-notice on house votes just yet. the president has a lot to gain politically with the blame on republicans for letting all of the country go over the cliff and the fact that they seem to hold on with the death grip for millionaires in this country. >> the republicans will be blamed it seems according to the polls going over the fiscal cliff but the president is responsible and wants the deal. he's been trying to negotiate by making reasonable concessions. lowered the rev
and they happen in defense and in medical as well. how much are those providing services to those sectors of the economy. >> one is my sister. she's a doctor and runs two medical practices here in the philadelphia area and she's a small business owner and it will hit her pretty hard because medicaid payments will be cut. people in other industries, particularly like you had said, tied to defense, those people will be hurting as well. however, if you're in the accounting business, what with the increase of taxes not such a bad year for you next year so it depends on what kind of business you're in. >> oh, yeah. if you prepare tax filings you're going to -- it's great, right? the more complicated the taxes get the better it is for you. it's terrible. >> you got it. legal profession, if you're in temporary services because people want to hire, not such a bad year for you or if you provide some type of technology services that will save companies money or reduce their overhead also not such a bad outlook. it happeneds on the small business that you're in, absolutely, some will go through pain
we don't expect that move. the defense department, leon panetta likely to step down. chuck hagel has been the leading contender we're told but now is running into interference from groups, including chuck schumer, who is expressing concern and former republican senator is the right guy. this is playing out like the susan rice situation, the u.n. embassador who never got nominated but there was criticism to the president pulled it back. john kerry getting that nomination. there's frustration among the president's supporters that he's leaving names out and not moving ahead but the fiscal cliff negotiations are dominating his time. >> the fiscal cliff and diamond head in the background and waikiki beach. ed, safe trip home. >>> joining us, from u.s. news and world report, ken walsh. who is going to come to the rescue, anybody? >> looks like there's a road block at every critical juncture point here. it looks like now the ball's in the senate's court, to mix met force. the house failed to get to a vote with speaker boehner's plan. it looks like the best they can do, really, is some kind
in self-defense to kill their kidnappers, captain and mate of the ship. so the slave trade was no longer a slave trade. it is a kidnapping ring and therefore illegal. they made the slave trade illegal and was the first step in our movement towards emancipation and people began rallying around him as the southerners and house of representatives tried to shut him out as he pleaded for emancipation. that aroused northerners. the quakers at first and others who realized john quincy on this was a devout christian is that this goes against all fundamentals of christianity. patrick henry said the same thing and soon you have this abolition movement beginning to grow and grow. the more they try to silence john quincy adams, the more he spoke out. they passed a categorical, making it against the rules of the house to use the word slavery. anytime you trade the essay, the speaker of the house from tennessee to my future president polk city is out of order and southerners would shout them down saying order, order. so he started pulling out petitions from his constituents at first, but then over the
really struggled the last six quarters -- especially on defense - is can they regain some momentum heading into the playoffs >> that is our main objective to play for the western conference it division championship this week. and also get a running start to the big championship. he was referring to the super bowl. one other piece of nfl news - pro bowl rosters announced today. and the niners are very well represented.not so for the raiders as you might expect. i'll have that story coming up in a little over an hour. >> vicki: we are looking forward to that game is going to be exciting. traffic on the bay bridge looking decent. headlights northbound -- commute direction 680 near the hwy. 24 interchange >> jacqueline: the rate the we have seen as largely coming to when and with some scattered showers over the santa cruz mountains. light rain continues and the rainfall has come to an end. to the east, south we will see clear conditions tomorrow. with cold temperatures, overnight. we would take a look at that and the chance of rainfall, coming up. >> vicki: now for today's market updat
passed a law called the defense of marriage act, which says marriage is between a man and woman. entity come from a state that recognizes same-sex marriage, like massachusetts, like new york, know what the state has to recognize that marriage. and it won't be recognized by any federal purposes, for example, social security. there has been a challenge to the constitutionality of that at -- that act. the court of appeals upheld it unconstitutional. the review has been filed in the supreme court. we haven't acted on it yet but it would be extraordinary for the court to act, to consider the constitutionality of a law passed by congress that a lower court had held unconstitutional. so i think it's most likely that we will have that issue before the court, toward the end of the current term. and then the person who asked the question will -- [inaudible] have the answer. >> another question comes from the auditorium. the lilly ledbetter case, one where you wrote a very emotionally charged dissent, that you, as i recall, read from the branch a game binge -- read from the bench, which is a rare
. >> this was a conventional defense that men offered when they left their wives so it's not to be credited in anyway. it may be in fact true but we have no evidence for that. >> charlie: and who was john forester, robert? >> forester was a... an ex-legal person as dickens was. he was a reporter. he became dickens' best friend. in some ways his only really good friends who stuck by him through thick and thin. he became his unofficial agent. he became his best editor. eventually he became dickens' biography. when he wrote the life of dickens, in many ways it was the life of a friend. it was the life written by a friend about a friend in a friendly way. but like all good friends it told a few sharp truths about dickens but it did them in disguise. so, for instance, we've just been hearing about the relationship with ellen. forced the reproduction of dickens' will in which ellen is the first person mentioned not his ex-wife, not his children. ellen. and forced to produce this without any great show, any great explanation but it's way of tipping the wing to the reader that this woman was the love of his life in
week was a bill that restored the sequester cuts to defense and which did some incredible damage to social programs by getting rid of the social services bloc grant meaning meals on wheels eliminated and things like that. that was essentially a bill that dealt with spending. the house has proposed extending all of the bush tax cuts for all income levels. that is something that cannot pass the senate. so i'm not sure what boehner thinks is going to be amended in the senate because the whole thing would be scrapped. the senate bill that was passed in july was sort of a clean bill. it was flawed in the sense that it didn't deal with the alternative minimum tax and some other things, but it extended the rates for everything under $250,000. that's the bill that the president wants to see an up or down vote in the house. again, even if the house were to vote on that bill, it would still have to go bab to the senate because the house has to act first. so it's just a mess. >> okay. thanks, joy. thanks, leigh. thanks for sticking around. stay tuned at 5:45 or the president's statement. up
know, looming tax increases, obviously the significant cut to defense and now you've got geithner describing where the debt ceiling is about to come into play december 31st. so you've got a pressurized situation that quite frankly is going to require some time to think through. so, you know, inge everybody is engaged here. but the problems are pretty significant. going back to this, remember when the speaker did that vote, he got over 90% of his conference behind him. the dynamic that exited here was that the democrats said we're going to make this a party line vote. if you can get it over the finish line with just republican votes, great. but you're not going to have any of ours. i think that goes to the dysfunctional nature of what we're dealing with and the amount of votes that are simply party line votes. >> i want to ask you, newt gingrich and bill clint job could not have been more different, yet they seemed to have a sort of common idea that they should come together to move the country forward. why do you think that's lacking so much between john boehner and president obam
defense to say that it is just a television show. i cannot think that is a valid point of view to have as a creative artist. >> as the moderator, i will make one comment. i grew up in the netherlands. there are 19 political parties. they used to buy time. interestingly, in the mid- 1970's, the show's the labor party showed was "all in the family." because they wanted everyone in holland to believe that archie bunker was the typical american. the more conservative party showed "m.a.s.h." the winter show there was an inherent anti-war sentiment in the united states and there were a lot of people that work empathetic with those clauses in holland. you can never really understand how it is going to be manipulated by local agendas and parties. that was my experience. let me ask a last question. aside from things that you have been directly involved with, is there a film or documentary or television show which you think is a great example of what hollywood can mean to public policy and politics? is there a singular documentary film, television show, which stands out to you? >> "mr. smith goe
it was coming. doug is right, house republicans did act. they acted to stop the defense cuts and stop the tax hikes. what happened since then, senate democrats have done nothing with it. i think president obama, senator reid, they have to bear some responsibility they haven't moved any of this house-passed legislation. it is time for president obama and senator reid to act. >> one thing an amos piece. senate passed a bill which protected folks making 250 and less and small businesses from a tax increase. that is collecting dust in the house right now. jon: well, doug, let me throw it back at you, this is the same senate that hasn't passed a budget in three years, even the president's budget got no votes in the senate the last time around. how can they lay all of the blame at the feet of the house of representatives? >> i would say, look, i think everyone shares in the blame what is going on here and but i do think that what you're seeing on the house is this, a almost a reluctance to take yes for an answer the president has put forward a plan which results in $2 trillion in total spending cut
. after they won the supreme court case identifying a right to own a gun in your home for self-defense, the question i think for them was well, what do we do now. do you fold up a $240 million a year organization? does wayne lapierre give up his $1.4 million a year salary? no. they have methodically gone from state legislature to state legislature chipping away at modest restrictions that most nra members support. so he has a huge problem, i think, based on that bizarre press conference, with the membership of the nra which is quite reasonable. >> ari, i want to get your reaction to the press conference the other day but as an attorney, to sort of talk about that turn because it is sort of a unique kind of feature of the idea of the constitution that you have this unique, you know, the individual right to bear arms. because historically, there's been lots of gun legislation. i was reading about sort of even the battle at the ok corral and these other fights in the wyatt earp days when you had to check your gun in at the sheriff's office. that was perfectly reasonable and it was sort of
time. and the to sequester these mandatory spending cuts to defense, there's not enough time to deal with those. that is a concern to many republicans, actually many democrats as well. that could be a final hiccup here even as we get closer on the tax question. >> so how are we supposed to do is then, christina? if we couldn't get it done at $1 million. speaker boehner couldn't get that done. is it going to look like a bipartisan agreement of over in the senate that's going to go to the house, may pass with bipartisan support and then that just makes speaker boehner look even worse than he has the past week or so? >> getting a bipartisan deal, i mean that's really an interesting question if it ends up making somebody look worse. what's interesting to me about the calculus in all of this, this little bit of political kabuki theater. in some case that's actually what it is. polls are showing that the american people are actually following this debate very closely. it's one that has been warned about for a long time. the automatic sequestration cuts have basically been warned about. we'
much to do with defense. a certain group of people say that we need to have cuts. then when the cuts there them in the face, they say not those cuts. that's the real problem. e their owns to gordon ac ox. host: scott is looking to start a business. in "politico" is this article this morning -- in "usa today" -- doc in baton rouge, louisiana, good morning it. caller: i have my own insurance agency. host: talk to us about the fiscal cliff. caller: i am kind of concerned about it. one party makes a recommendation and never followed through. we don't get very much cutting in these negotiations through the years. in 1990 the democrats said that they would do spending cuts, but they did not. everytime i see a young child, 5, 6, 7 years old or younger, i pat them on the head and tell them i am sorry the countries in this mess, they're going to pay for it, because we have too many greedy people who came up through the 1960's and the only thing they are concerned about is . is we're in for a road through the next few years. host: thank you for your views. from accounting today, this article a
's probably the defense that's probably the number one industry that gets hit but there's all kinds of unintended and unexplored areas that get affected. for instance what happens to the food prices. it's not part of the fiscal cliff package but there's a farm subsidy bill that expires and you have to find your way around that. it's more about the automatic tax increase on everybody that really would kick in. withholding levels go up paychecks get smaller and that creates some kind of a maybe spiral of hesitancy or a little bit of a new conservatism in spending. >> there's also the debt ceiling portion of all of this. you know we've talked about this before. we hit the debt ceiling december 31st. secretary treasurer tim geithner says he can move some money around but that's going to be the big one. >> at some point that limit will be increased. the question is how long will that limit be increased for? will we be back on the treadmill of several months of a stalemate before you have to refight this battle again? i thing that's what everyone's become weary of. a sm
. this is not a perfect bill, as no bill is perfect. it does make cuts in entitlements, it does cut defense, it does raise taxes, and it does attack the budget deficit. >> if this budget package is adopted, the deficit of the united states will be reduced substantially. that is not hot air. >> clayton: does that sound like something you may have heard from lawmakers today? that was over 20 years ago. does washington ever change its tone or their debate? let's ask the man who served in the white house of policy. good morning to you, peter, and welcome to the show. >> good morning. glad to be here. >> clayton: does this ever change? i moon, 1990, it sounds like we're going over the exact same things again here in 2012. >> what's most immediately relevant is what happened as a result of that package. the spending cuts were never really enacted. the tax increases pushed the economy into recession. and so the deficit increased rather than declined. so it went from 220 billion in 1990 to 269 billion in 1991, 290 billion in 1992. i think that's directly relevant today because i think the obama tax increases are
